Fields v. Hoyt

Posted On By

Author and Judge Andrew P. Rodovich presents readers with a quick case file, perfect for time-limited classes and programs with his latest, Fields v. Hoyt. In this case file, Homer Hoyt took his son Robert to see the Boston Braves play the Chicago Cubs back in 1935. Robert had recently broken his arm and was in a cast. At the game, Robert asked Babe Ruth to sign his cast, instead, Ruth gave him the bat he had used in batting practice. Decades later after Robert’s death, his son Scott sold a bat to plaintiff Emmitt Fields and claimed it was the one Babe Ruth had given to his father. Fields has sued Scott Hoyt, alleging that Scott fraudulently induced him to purchase the bat.

This case file features three witnesses per side as well as access to the electronic files of the exhibits via NITA’s easy-to-use digital download center. Likewise, law professors may request the teaching notes by email
